Nancy vs Rennes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Rennes will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in Ligue 1 to six games when they travel to the Stade Marcel-Picot to take on Nancy on Saturday night. Nancy were beaten 1-0 on the road at Guingamp, but it has to be said that they played with ten men after Modou Diagne saw red just before the half-hour mark. Meanwhile, Rennes fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-1 home draw against Lyon thanks to a late equaliser from Firmin Mubele.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Three of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen at least three goals scored, but I’m expecting a much tighter game this time. Both sides looked poor going forward throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, having scored just 50 goals between them. Nancy have only scored three goals in their last five home league games, while Rennes have failed to find the back of the net in three of their last four league trips.

Under 1.5 goals at 6/4

Both teams to score - No at 7/10

Nancy Preview

Nancy suffered a 1-0 defeat on the road at Guingamp last weekend to extend their winless streak in Ligue 1 to nine games. Actually, this was their eighth defeat in their last nine league outings. The most worrying fact is that Nancy have failed to score in seven of those nine games. This leaves Nancy only in 18th position in the Ligue 1 table tied on 28 points with the 19th-placed Lorient, just one point behind safety. Nancy’s biggest problem throughout this Ligue 1 campaign has been their inefficient attack, as they hold the worst offensive record in the division with just 21 goals scored in 31 league games. Issiar Dia is Nancy’s topscorer with just six goals under his belt in his 25 league appearances. On home soil, Nancy were on a six-game winning streak across all competitions between the end of October 2016 to the middle of January 2017, but they looked terrible over the past few months. They are currently on a five-game winless streak in Ligue 1 at home, having conceded at least two goals in four of these. In addition, Nancy have won their last seven home meetings with Rennes in Ligue 1, scoring just four goals in the process.

Rennes Preview

On the other hand, Rennes have only lost once in their last nine league outings, but seven of these have ended in draws. They are currently on a five-game unbeaten streak in Ligue 1, winning once and drawing four in the process. Rennes currently sit in a comfortable 11th spot in the league table tied on 40 points with the 10th-placed Toulouse, and already eleven points clear of the bottom three. Similar to their Saturday’s opponents, Rennes have also struggled to find the back of the net throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, having scored just 29 goals in 31 league games so far. Giovanni Sio has been Rennes’ most in-form player throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, as the Ivorian striker is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 7 goals in his 27 league appearances. Away from home, Rennes have only lost one of their last eight away games across all competitions, but six of these have ended in draws. The good news is that Rennes are undefeated in their last seven visits to the Stade Marcel-Picot, scoring at least two goals in four of these. Head-to-head, Rennes are unbeaten in their last two meetings with Nancy across all competitions, including a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture.
